Indigenous knowledges and the university library
This article illustrates the value of caring for Indigenous knowledge in an academic library from an Indigenous perspective. Responsibilities for this take many forms such as teaching information literacy skills in researching Indigenous knowledge with a cultural component, collection development activities that honor community protocols regarding access to Indigenous knowledge, explaining the need for categorizing Indigenous knowledge in culturally relevant ways, and publishing articles that reflect the library stewardship of Indigenous knowledge from an Indigenous perspective.
